MADRID, AFP - Atletico Madrid and Chelsea will have it all to play for when they meet in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final in London next Wednesday after a 0-0 draw in the first leg at the Vicente Calderon yesterday.

Chances were far and few as Chelsea set up to stifle the hosts with two late headers from Raul Garcia the closest Atletico came to breaking the deadlock.

The English side did suffer two significant injuries, however.

Veteran ex-Socceroos goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer was called up from the bench in the 17th minute to replace Petr Cech after the top-choice number one suffered an injury.

And captain John Terry also had to be replaced, putting his participation for the second leg in doubt.

Chelsea's Frank Lampard and John Obi Mikel and Atletico captain Gabi will definitely miss the game at Stamford Bridge as they all got yellow cards that will lead to a suspension.

Fernando Torres started on his first game back at the Calderon as a visiting player since leaving to join Liverpool in 2007, but he cut an isolated figure as Chelsea were happy to stick 10 men behind the ball.
